I Did It!

I went to the Y tonight with the intention of swimming and doing 20 minutes on the elliptical. But, when I got there, they were having a synchronized swim practice. Ughh! that is the most annoying thing to have to deal with. So, I opted out of the swim.

Went straight upstairs to the elliptical and did that for 15 minutes. I stopped to take a minute and assess how my foot was feeling. It felt great.

At that point, my determination kicked in, and I moved to a treadmill.

You guessed it...I ran!

Okay, it was a 5 minute warm up walk. 4 minute run. 3 min walk. 3 minute run. 3 min walk 2 min run. Then a 2 minute cool down.
22 minutes all together. 9 minutes of running. Which is just under a mile at the pace I was going!

This morning, I feel great!
